Leaving Your Mark!
Join in this fun and supportive day
as we break down the landscape and build it back up with shapes, lines, and everything in between!
By letting go of our photograph, we will make it ours through gesture, composition, and our own style of mark making.
Laurinda will begin with a discussion and demonstration before diving into exercises.
Whether you are a realist, expressionist, or abstract artist there will be plenty of individual instruction.
All artists using soft pastels, oil, or acrylic paints are welcome.
Please bring photographs.
Bring your soft pastel, acrylic, or oil supplies
At least 6 small surfaces (4x6, 6x6, 5x7, 8x8, whatever you prefer). These surfaces need to be able to handle wet media if you are using pastels. They can be boards or any paintable surface. Larger surfaces to work on, your choice, but at least 9x12, 12x18, etc. Can be square, but bigger is key.
Acrylic and Oil painters can bring bigger canvases. Whatever you are comfortable with (or … push yourself and go bigger!)
Pastelists need paper that can get wet. Alcohol for underpainting (for use with soft pastels)
Black ink (Yasutomo Liquid Sumi Ink is waterproof when dry)
Masking or artist tape (no blue or green painter’s tape)
Back board such as foam core to attach surfaces while you work
Glassine or document bags to protect work
